Pistons' Rodney McGruder: Out again Sunday
McGruder (foot) will not play in Sunday's game against the Bulls.
McGruder will miss a ninth straight game with a sprained right foot and is one of seven Pistons players that will be in street clothes for the contest. Although McGruder appeared in just 32 games for Detroit, he averaged 16.4 minutes per game and shot 42.3 percent from beyond the arc.... See More ... See Less

Pistons' Rodney McGruder: Remains out
McGruder (foot) is out for Wednesday's game against the Nets.
McGruder will miss a seventh straight game due to a foot knee sprain. After Wednesday's contest, he'll have just two more chances to suit up this season, but with the Pistons mathematically eliminated from the Play-In Tournament, it'd be surprising to see McGruder play again before the conclusion of the campaign....

Pistons' Rodney McGruder: Questionable Monday
McGruder (foot) is questionable for Monday's matchup with Milwaukee.
The foot injury forced McGruder to the sidelines Friday, which resulted in Isaiah Livers getting the start and there were more minutes available for Eugene Omoruyi and R.J. Hampton. It'll be more of the same if he's out again Monday.... See More ... See Less

Pistons' Rodney McGruder: Keeps producing in elevated minutes
McGruder tallied 15 points (5-13 FG, 2-8 3Pt, 3-3 FT), nine rebounds, three assists and two steals across 37 minutes in Sunday's 112-100 loss to the Heat.
By virtue of being one of the few Pistons who hasn't been on the injury report of late, McGruder has found his way into the starting five in seven straight games, and he's reached the 30-minute mark on five occasions. Though McGruder has been outside of the rotation when Detroit has been at full strength this season, he looks as though he may have a path to fantasy relevance down the stretch with the Pistons showing little motivation in bringing back Bojan Bogdanovic (Achilles) or Alec Burks (foot). Over his seven-game run on the top unit, McGruder is averaging 14.0 points, 5.1 rebounds, 3.3 three-pointers, 1.6 assists and 1.0 steals.... See More ... See Less
Pistons' Rodney McGruder: Highly productive in loss
McGruder ended Thursday's 119-100 loss to the Nuggets with 20 points (7-15 FG, 6-10 3Pt), eight rebounds, three assists, one block and three steals across 34 minutes.
McGruder put together a late-season special Thursday, compiling a fantastic two-way performance. At this stage, there is no point in trying to understand the Pistons' rotation. Managers can only play what's in front of them; as of now, it is McGruder. He obviously won't be this good again anytime soon, but as long as he sees upwards of 30 minutes, he makes for a viable asset, even in standard leagues.... See More ... See Less
Pistons' Rodney McGruder: Pops for season-high 18 in win
McGruder ended with 18 points (7-14 FG, 4-5 3Pt), five rebounds, two assists and one steal over 32 minutes during Monday's 117-97 victory over the Pacers.
It's the veteran wing's best scoring effort of the season, and it helped the Pistons win their first game in over a month. McGruder has started four straight games and six of the last eight for an injury-ravaged Detroit roster, but he's only scored in double digits in the last two. If Bojan Bogdanovic (Achilles) gets shut down for the remainder of the season, however, McGruder could keep his spot in the starting five the rest of the way.... See More ... See Less
Pistons' Rodney McGruder: Starting vs. Wizards
McGruder will start Tuesday's tilt against the Wizards, Keith Langlois of the Pistons' official site reports.

Pistons' Rodney McGruder: Not listed on injury report
McGruder (ankle) isn't listed on the Pistons' injury report ahead of Tuesday's matchup versus the Wizards.
McGruder sat out the first half of Detroit's back-to-back set Monday due to an ankle injury, but he'll return to action Tuesday. Killian Hayes (hand), Alec Burks (foot) and Hamidou Diallo (ankle) are all out, so McGruder, R.J. Hampton and Cory Joseph are candidates for increased roles in the backcourt against Washington....

Pistons' Rodney McGruder: Coming off bench Saturday
McGruder is not in the starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Cavaliers, Omari Sankofa II of the Detroit Free Press reports.
McGruder had started in each of Detroit's last two games, but he moves back to the bench with Isaiah Livers (ankle) returning to the lineup after a one-game absence. McGruder averages 3.1 points across 9.5 minutes per game when coming off the bench (19 appearances).... See More ... See Less

However, he'll join the starting lineup for the third time this season since Bojan Bogdanovic (Achilles) is out. McGruder averaged 5.0 points, 4.5 rebounds and 2.5 assists in 19.0 minutes per game over his first two starts this year.... See More ... See Less
